Pali Wine Co. Pinot Noir Monterey Santa Barbara Summit Vineyard 2010

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

A bit inky on the nose with some earthy, oaky base notes and smoky herbs under hard mineral and black fruit aromas. This is intense. It's soft, creamy and a bit heavy in the mouth with a base of oak drenched in slightly tarry, raisin, black cherry and dried blackberry fruit. There's a nice brambly array of inner mouth perfumes here on the mid-palate along with late arriving strawberry preserves and herb flavors that bring a hint of heat as well. This is smooth and powerful but doesn't really have much of a finish other than a bit of alcoholic burn, with hints of clove and allspice. 87pts
